    Disappointing, but not the end of the world.

    Honestly, I had forgotten about these. I was only getting Slipstream anyway.

    what "behavior" ? Seriously? did we only make it to Page 3 before people started calling out TFCC AND the customers of TFCC for every single thing that the people who do not use the services of TFCC are troubled by?

    TFCC Licensed the toys to be made, they don't make them themselves..... And they are giving us an update as soon as they got one.

    This is the key. HASBRO is delaying.....NOT TFCC.

    So, for those of us on the installment plan, I wonder now when they'll charge for the next portion.

    I hope they stick to what they said about not charging for third and fourth figure until the second figure ships.

    Yeah; I'll give the TCC credit for making a post about this; I was starting to wonder. And manufacturing delays - they're at the mercy of Hasbro here, so that's fair.

    Guess they're on the same level as third parties now though - they all have unplanned delays :p

    That's what I'm hoping. I wouldn't be all too amused if they charged me, say, tomorrow for the next portion when the first figure is still months away.

    Why do people put up with the TFCC anyway?

    I certainly didn't sign up because the magazine was great...just for Runamuck and s wasted chance to try to get a Over-run without paying with a kidney or small organ.

    Personally don't care, not a single one of those figures was something I was interested in owning. Haven't been to thrilled of being a TFCC member as I was hoping I'd be. Looks like the thrill of getting the Run twins was enough.

    Sucks. If I had known the first payment would not be due until April/May, I could've swung the sub. Such is life, I guess.

    Supernews (for some).

    It means not having to find the money so quickly for many people doing deals on the unwanted figures while there's all these 3rd Party Pre-order descending on us at an accelerated rate that need paying for in advance.

    A small delay ins't that much of an issue but it's a good thing really =especially to those paying in smaller lumps if the payments are further apart now ?

    Though if you no longer want them due to this you could write them a strongly worded letter/email or ring them up and point out they agreed on a particular time period for their delivery and they have breached that and so have breached the contract and you'd like a refund.

    If they covered their backside by saying they didn't specify a delivery date then you might have a harder job of it. but to be honest you will not loose out by selling the things on even if you don't want them so it's more sensible to keep them and pass them on to someone who does want them... especially the poor stiffs outside the USA who get treated like mugs by Fun Pub.

    If they did do that then I would suggest complaining to Hasbro about them and pointing out what they'd previously said and tell them to sort them out. As it's their name they are harming by association in acting poorly ( Should they happen to do that).


    Usually they are complaining about Takara and how they organise their Chinese factory schedules and then they moan about how Takara don't like dealing with these small run items and like to mess them about over it, even when they know there is a deadline.

    The mistakes over the years have been to numerous to list really... I think the problem often results if Takara get higher than expected orders on something and need to make more using up more allocated time (or lower numbers and they try to fit another item in between other earlier). for example Takara's Rumble/Frenzy/Wildrider and the FOC Combaticons were actually a little early it seems, and Hasbro's diary is trotting out Beast Hunters quickly for USA distribution.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone if reacting to the desire to see Beast Hunters out earlier in Europe than the stupid date or May/June/July. if those extra runs needed to be done as quickly as possible and they make them in the same line then they might not have time to swap the moulds to run off a few Circuits at the moment.

    Not surprised, expected a rocky start for this subscription service deal. Won't surprise me if the 2nd and 3rd shipments arrive together either.
